Australian police rescue man lost in back garden

A man in Australia has been rescued by police after getting lost in his own back garden.

The man, known only as "Jason" wandered into the 20-acre garden looking for his dog.

He was finally located 300m away without shoes or a shirt and covered in bites and scratches.

Darwin NT News reporter Damian McCartney told BBC Radio 5 live's Up All Night: "He'd only been on this rural property for about three weeks so he didn't really know the lay of the land."
